Welcome Back to a New 100 Ways to 30

Monday, 15 February 2016



Hello! Welcome back to a brand new and improved 100 Ways to 30. I have relaunched, and I really do hope you like it - I love it, so I guess that kind of means you should too right? No? Like it goddammit! ... Please.

I'm a creature of habit so I hate change. But at the same time, I also have a habit of getting bored of things - very easily, and like to change things up a bit. Confused? You should be, I am too! I'm quite a contradictory character, you'll come to know, the type that just never knows one's mind. The type that will spit a new food out in disgust and then a few months later will be gorging it down in multitudes with the same confused look you all probably have on your faces right now...I'm going to stop, because I don't really know if I'm making any sense or not. And I'm wasting valuable blogging time - I've started to notice it's all about the images these days, too much words and people will click off faster than you can say ABRA-CADABRA! 


So, fast forward that monstrosity of a story. I get bored of things very easily and one of these things became my blog design. It wasn't until the summer, when I really started to blog a lot more and take it a lot more seriously, that I realised I really wanted to take this little old thing, a little bit further than just a thing I do in my spare time. It is what I really want to do and I really want to do IT! (No, not that IT! Pfft, don't be childish now!) I mean I really want to take my blog further, I want to take more pride in it, and really use it as a place to build and grow creatively. So I thought in order to do this, I needed a brand new layout, new style and just a general overhaul to give me that fresh new year new me feel - only this time it's new design, new blog, new mind!

So what can you expect on the new 100 Ways to 30? Well, I want to really up the anti with my content. I have decided that I want to focus mainly on fashion, fun lists and advice with an extra bit of miscellaneous beauty and interior posts on the side. Before the re-design I had a serious look at what was working and what wasn't working for 100 Ways, I found that my outfit posts and the fun/me-trying-to-be-humorous list posts such as the 10 Annoying things about being the single friend post, really worked for me as a writer and for you all as an audience. I enjoy styling outfits and talking about fashion, I also enjoy writing fun lists about being a zesty 21 year old and all the ways that I am experiencing life on the way to 30!

In saying this, I also didn't want to limit myself to just these categories so I have decided to include a few little extras to add that added hint of spice, and to save you all - including myself from becoming very, very bored of my content. Change is good for the soul they say - my contradictory mind would say otherwise, but heck - I'm rolling with it!



Miscellaneous:
This category is my attempt at starting to inject a little bit of a difference every so often into my content. I'm not the biggest beauty buff out there, I mean I did already say, I actually don't know my Zoeva from my Zoella brush (I eventually realised Zoella, does not yet even have a line of make up brushes!) but I like it - sometimes, and I can attempt to write about it - sometimes. I also love interiors, baking, DIY and everything else in between. Expect to see this content featured on the blog probably 2-3 times a month.

Quizzes: So this new feature is a bit of a trial run I guess, and I'm not sure how it's going to go. I LOVE quizzes, like I really love them, borderline obsessive. I came across one the other day on 'The Blogger's lounge' website and I immediately knew that I wanted to find a way to incorporate this style of interactivity into my new site. At the moment, they're nothing too serious, just a bit of fun, so I hope you enjoy them. If you have any feedback regarding the quizzes please let me know in the comments below. Find the quizzes under the Take a break sub category of 'life'.

Current Mood:
Current mood is another new feature to my blog. It is home to inspirational quotes, words of the week, my favourite lyrics and a whole lot of style, interior and beauty inspiration mood boards (so basically Pinterest!). I decided to create this section as a way for me to be inspired and a way for you all to gain something more from my blog than just my own personal outfits. Find 'current mood' on the main home page. 

So, what do you think of the new and improved 100 Ways to 30? If you have any thoughts on the new design, or any new suggestions, I would love to hear them! So have a look around, wait a while and let us ponder on this thing called life. There is a whole lot of new coming very soon, so stay tuned!

Also I would just like to say a big, big thank you to Mina from Underline designs, for customizing my blog design and adding all the little features I required, she has been a gem and has attended to my every wish for the site! She has absolutely beautiful designs, so if you are in need of a brand new design for your blog, please check out her site!

  2. Oh, this must be exciting! I know what you mean of wanting things to change, but also liking ritual and having things be the same, haha. It's definitely a strange contradiction, but I totally understand! The new look is great, and I look forward to your new approaches :)
